The Dark Garden corset archive covers a wide range of styles and sizes. Our corsets are available for loan for photoshoots and occasional theatrical fashion shows. A credit card number must be on file as insurance, and in most cases (even for TF*) a (significantly reduced) rental fee will apply.
Existing Dark Garden fans, please tag us in your images! Thank you.
When Dark Garden owner and founder Autumn Adamme made her first corset in 1987, she based her pattern on an antique from her grandmother’s closet. With over 20 years of experience in couture stitching and historical costuming, Adamme’s San Francisco shop, Dark Garden, is one of the few workshops in the world that specializes in the traditional art of custom corsetry.
Fueled by word-of-mouth marketing from years of satisfied customers, Dark Garden’s client base has grown to include some of Hollywood’s hottest names, including Dita von Teese, a modern pinup model who posed in a Dark Garden corset for one of Playboy’s most popular 2002 covers, and Christina Aguilera, who was fitted for a bespoke Dark Garden corset including a custom tailcoat for her "Back To Basics" album release party in August 2006.
Autumn and her skilled production team of 12 designers, stitchers, cutters, and finishers as well as production manager, Kristin Argue, and store manager, Andrea Ferrante, are committed to superior customer service and exceptional quality and unique design for every single one of their clients.
